"Tempesto/Diavolo" Construction Goes Vertical at Busch Gardens Williamsburg

Well, Busch Gardens Williamsburg still hasn't made an official announcement about this one, but it's only a matter of time before they do. The main reason? The structure is going vertical and right now that's during their Christmas Town event, so it's starting to be noticed by more people who are in the park most likely. There's no official word on when they'll be releasing all the details, even if most of us out there know what they're up to already.

That said, construction is moving along and considering that this isn't exactly a huge project, they seem to be right on course for an opening to go along with the park's Spring 2015 opening date. Don't quote on me on that though, we'll just have to wait and see but it does feel that way to me.

Just how far along are they? Well, thanks to the ever awesome folks over at BGWfans.com, we can show you!

For those not familiar, the new ride is going into the Festa Italia section of the park and right up against Apollos Chariot. It's an odd placement, and many don't agree with it, but everyone here suspects that it's due to visibility from the road.

If you're curious as to what exactly the ride is going to look like or what it's going to entail, we've already covered that quite extensively in the past. And yes, we're still shaking our heads over why Busch Gardens would put something like this into the park and not something more substantial. Either way, there's no avoiding it, it's definitely coming.

So, enough rambling, let's get to a few more pictures form the BGW Fans folks showing off how the construction has come along since our last visit to the park. If you'd like to see more, head over to their site for all that and tons of talk about Busch Gardens Williamsburg. 


Now for a few more pictures!
